    The Marshall London is the smartphone that audiophiles’ dreams are made of

    I know quite a few people who would love a phone like this.

    When you think about storied British audio brand Marshall, probably the last thing that comes to mind are smartphones. After all, unlike the killer amplifiers which England’s finest has come to be known for, most phones sport tinny speakers and underpowered ports incapable of delivering any real harmonic range. But leave it to Marshall to apply its musical expertise to a product category no one expected it to address. Today it announced the London, its first Android smartphone.

    The London isn’t Marshall’s only foray into consumer electronics — it launched a headphone line two years ago and Bluetooth speakers more recently — but it is the amp maker’s first collaboration with Finnish firm design firm Creoir, the favored partner of Nokia and Jolla. The resulting fit and finish couldn’t be more authentically Marshall: the London’s hard-edged frame, which evokes the company’s amp styling, is wrapped in faux leather and accented by brass metal buttons and jacks. And in an even more obvious nod to the London’s parentage, a dimpled gold scroll wheel handles volume adjustment. The design, in a word, is gnarly.
